This 18-track set leans heavily on her earliest solo material, when she was recording for Dunhill, although it does have a few songs taken from RCA recordings made just before her death. Away from the Mamas & the Papas, Elliot (initially billed as Mama Cass) went into more of an MOR direction, somewhere between the Mamas & the Papas and Vegas. Frankly, she could sound like a hip variation on Ethel Merman. Even the two Top 40 hits that Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil wrote for her in late 1969, "It's Getting Better" and "Make Your Own Kind of Music," are brassy belters with an almost desperate optimism. Those hits are included here, along with her 1968 Top 20 entry "Dream a Little Dream of Me" (which was actually a Mamas & the Papas track), another Mann-Weil-penned single ("New World Coming"), a cover of Bruce Johnston's "Disney Girls," and a pre-Mamas & the Papas cut that she sang as part of the Big Three.
This is talent...that's what the crap this is
I can understand how someone younger will go 'Mama who?' when it comes to Cass Elliot. But to call her music 'crap' without understanding its relevance to today's music is just plain sad. So much music that you take for granted wouldn't exist without Mama Cass' influence. I encourage everyone to buy this music and to check out the music of the Mamas and Papas.
This woman was an icon of the 60's & 70's
I don't understand how someone could call this crap, I mean I can understand how one may not care for it, but why are you listening to it in the first place, much less buying. This was Cass' "breakout" album after leaving the Mamas and Papas, and reinventing herself AGAIN. Madonna had nothing on Cass, she was a stellar performer and a beloved folk artist long before this album debuted around the same time she was the headliner in Caeser's Palace. Her career was memorable even to me, and I was all but 4-6 when she was on top with her own primetime TV show, if you enjoy the music of the 60's and 70's then you can't dispute she was one of the shaping forces of the day and arguably one of the most influential artists of the times.
